Summary of the Interior Car Lights Challenge
Interior car lights have evolved dramatically over the decades, from a few lighting spots with limited functions to what we have today: functional and ambient lighting in the car interior which allows passengers to be informed, communicate, etc.
Lighting technology has evolved hand-in-hand with the use of car interior lighting. Usually, the lighting source are thermal radiators, which means that the hotter the source, the brighter the light.
Light-emitting diodes (LEDs) are increasingly used in automotive lighting because of their long working life, extreme resistance to vibration and their small size. LEDs are low-consumption and reach their brightest point ¼ of a second faster than traditional light bulbs.
OLED and laser lights are more advanced lighting systems, and their introduction for both interior and exterior lighting is increasing every day.
What the client is looking for
Grupo Antolin is looking for a complete lighting system with all the possible functions, including design and control/operating technology, that meets the needs of the new types of mobility.
- Flexibility in terms of location, functionality and control strategy.
- Low cost.
- Low energy demand.
- The fewest possible parts.
- Working life depending on the purpose of the vehicle.
The solution must be integrated, completely or partially, within the GA components.
Proposals will be evaluated according to the following criteria:
- Technical solution, considering the entire system
- The solution may be included in the GA’s portfolio
- Flexibility in functionality
- Low energy consumption
- Low cost
This is a one-round challenge with the following deadlines:
- 6 weeks + 4 weeks for evaluation
Prizes: 10,000 EUR
First award for the best solution which complies with the evaluation criteria: 8,000 EUR.
The second and third best solutions will also receive 1,000 EUR each.
Grupo Antolin may be interested in further collaborating with the participants in the development of the proposed solutions. In such case, specific terms would be agreed for ruling such collaboration.
